Easy-to-use angle sensor boasts highest functional safety grading

By eeNews Europe

The XENSIV TLE5014 family will initially be on show at the Sensor+Test 2018 fair in Nuremberg. At the event, Infineon will exhibit how easy it is to design the new products into a safety-critical electric power steering system (EPS).

The TLE5014 sensors meet ISO26262 ASIL C for the single die and ISO26262 ASIL D for the dual die versions – meaning that they can be used for applications with the highest functional safety requirements. The TLE5014 have an angle error of less than 1° across the entire temperature profile and lifetime.

The XENSIV TLE5014 angle sensors come in single and dual die configurations. They are pre-configured and pre-calibrated to be ready to use. The sensors have SENT, PWM and SPC interfaces, and a version with SPI interface is planned for the end of the year. Programmable E²PROM interfaces allow the sensors to be programmed for any application.

The XENSIV TLE5014 sensors are based on giant magnetoresistive (GMR) technology with the sensor unit and the logic part monolithically integrated on one single chip. All products are capable of high input voltages up to 26 V.
